Pro Shop and get paid for it.

Cons Rules, regulations and uncomfortable espionage.

After reading some great Grassroots reviews on this site, I thought I'd join up. So easily led, heh? How do you imagine Mystery Shopping if you've never done it? In my mind, I flounced through the streets of the West End in a fur coat, a little light snow drifting down. Brightly lit shop windows...

ConsWork can be sparce and it won't make you millions

I have thought about doing an opinion on this subject for a long time. I have been scared off a bit because I have so much to say and I want to make sure I say it in the right way and that I don’t miss anything out. So here goes. What is Mystery Shopping? Let me first explain that I am a mother...

It was only a couple of months ago that I began surfing the web to find out more on mystery shopping. I applied for a few, passed a telephone interview on one and a test run mystery shop on another. Since then, I haven’t looked back really. I work for Retail Maxim, so the experiences I will...

ConsYou never know when an assignment will come to you

Grass Roots Mystery Shopping. I have been a mystery shopper for about two years now and not only is it fun but it's easy money. Your never going to get rich working for grass roots but you will receive a steady flow of assignments which usually pay £10 at a time. HOW TO JOIN...

Mystery Shopping, beware as there are many online offers saying you can earn money by joining them. Most only mention there is a fee to pay when you have almost completed the sign-up process. I would like to give you some advice before you get started. Look for the Mystery Shopping companies that...

ProPays well. Flexible. Easy.

ConsYou need to be VERY organised.

I was first introduced to Mystery Shopping as a result of reading opinions on Ciao and other opinion websites. I’d heard of Mystery Shopping and was always intrigued but never knew quite how to get started. It’s been 6 months now and it’s fair to say I’m earning a healthy little packet… The thing...
